Common Aesthetic Dermatologic Treatment Options
Customized Skin Care
We recognise that every individual is unique and requires a personalised treatment plan. Our clinic has a wide range of customised treatments for your skin care requirements. During consultation, our dermatologist will assess your skin type and identify specific skin problems prior to recommending medications and skin care products tailored to your needs.
Pigmentary disorders are a group of conditions which affect the colour of the skin. Skin cells which produce pigment, or melanin, are called melanocytes. Increased activity or number of melanocytes results in darkening, or hyperpigmentation of the skin. Some common examples of disorders causing hyperpigmentation include freckles, solar lentigines, melasma and Hori’s naevus.
Botulinium Toxin Injections
Botulinum Toxin is a natural protein produced by a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. In large quantities, Botulinum Toxin causes relaxation of muscles. When this protein is purified and injected with a very fine needle into certain facial muscles, the muscles relax and create a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Facial fillers are substances which are injected into the skin to create a more youthful appearance. They act by filling in facial lines or depressions and thus result in a plumping up effect on the skin.
Chemical peels involve the application of chemical agents such as glycolic acid (AHA) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to gently remove the outer layer of the skin. This results in regeneration of a new skin layer, revealing skin which looks smoother, lighter and more glowing.
The HydraFacial™ is a technology-driven facial that delivers instantly noticeable improvement with less treatment time. HydraFacial thoroughly cares for your skin, providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion® of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The HydraFacial™ is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with no discomfort or downtime. The procedure is immediately effective.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing involves the use of a carbon dioxide laser to gently exfoliate your skin layer by layer. When the outermost layer of the skin is removed, the deeper layer of skin is exposed, leading to collagen stimulation and production. As a result, a new layer of skin is formed, leading to a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves the use of special lasers to remove excessive or unwanted hair from all parts of the body, including the face, limbs, underarms, bikini line and back. Unlike temporary methods of hair removal such as shaving and waxing, laser hair removal not only gets rid of the hair shafts, it also causes destruction of the hair follicles and its roots.
Tattoo removal can be accomplished using the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser. A series of treatments is always necessary. The number of treatment with the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser will vary depending on the lesion, size, location, colour and age of the patient and age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos respond more quickly than professional tattoos, although both can be improved with laser tattoo removal.
